Create prioritization for files/folders.
Allow for users to set a prioritization of particular folders so to allow them to sync before everything else. Would be invaluable when using another device to have the files you set as high priority to download/upload before everything else.

PLEASE MERGE TOPICS ABOUT PRIORITIZATION! :-)
I host a lot of documents as a backup but then there is a very small folder a lot of people collaborate in at our office. Each time I have to resync all the contents, being able to prioritize this small folder would ease our work a lot, since I don't care how long it takes for the rest to sync. It's all about what files do you need urgently when you store a lot.
My onedrive takes more than ONE WEEK to sync with our corporate network so you can understand the importance of prioritizing a specific folder before all the bulk.

We have here many people asking prioritization in many topics under Onedrive. If all those casted votes were to be merged, we would get an expressive amount of people wishing the same: a feature that would allow to make Onedrive focus on syncing some files first.
I am here waiting almost one hour just to get a file of 2.4 KB because it is still downloading a huge log file... This is really annoying.

I just set up a new device with my OneDrive. Syncing 30 GB is taking many hours to complete while I am still waiting on a particular file to land on my device. Ideally I can reshuffle the sync queue and get this particular file prioritized.

Yes, totally agree. I find this a problem regularly. OneDrive is pushing and pulling tons of files- but I just created a document I need to share before I leave the office (or just forget) etc. It would be nice if there were a way for important files to "jump the que" and let regular activity trickle in the background.
